Does your final year project includes a substantial portion of microscopy? CAM supports honours students through co-supervision (with the relevelant research faculty member) of eligible projects. Students and supervisors are advised to plan in advance to allow students time to receive appropriate instrument training.
If you're a PhD student or supervisor who could use microscopy to support your research, we encourage you to get in contact with CAM to see how we can help. If microscopy forms a substantial part of your project, co-supervision with a CAM staff member might be appropriate.
The International Research Training Group (IRTG) ‘Crossing Boundaries: Molecular Interactions in Malaria’ is a partnership between the ANU and Humboldt University of Berlin, and has been funded by the German Research Foundation in collaboration with the ANU. The program looks to answer fundamental problems in malaria, with the goal to develop new interventions strategies.
Accepted participants study at both the ANU and Humboldt University, spending at least 12 months at the partner university and earn dual PhDs, one from each institution. This program gives students the opportunity to undertake industry internships, and collaborate with non-university companies and institutions, such as the World Health Organisation, NGOs, publishers and pharmaceutical companies.
One goal is to train graduates to become independent, interdisciplinary, innovative researchers. To realise this, there is also a customised training program (including voluntary internships) to support the PhD students in acquiring critical skills to prepare for increasingly globalised and competitive public and private job markets.
